Range Description

This species is endemic of New Caledonia. It occurs in Grande Terre, and Ile des Pins and its satellite islands. It is known from widely scattered localities in the east and south of Grande Terre (northernmost site is Mt Mandjélia in the Panié massif); present on many islands and islets around Ile des Pins. It occurs at elevations between 500 m and 1,100 m. The extent of occurrence is approximately 10,000 km², and the area of occupancy is estimated to be approximately 1,000 km². However, area of occupancy is likely to be greater than the number of records indicate as many sites are in relatively extensive areas of potential habitat.

[Extent of occurrence was based on a crude measure of overall length times width of the most distant known locations (a rough measure of the line around the points), except for very widespread species where the published areas of the islands were taken. Area of occupancy is a contraction of that rough estimate for extent of occurrence based on where habitat remains.]
